do they blame the rich people? too.have moneyo, right now i'm supporting mitt romney. host: let's get a response. guest: i am sorry that you lost your job. what is says is our economy is not on track. president obama knows that and his message is, "give me four more years." the message from mitt romney is, "get out of here. you have had enough time." that will be a crucial issue. people are looking for those messages. guest: it tends to get lost. not blaming that on the financial mess. of course it will affect him and his political outlook and his vote if he has felt the sting of this recession and getting laid off. a lot of people have been out of work for a long time. some of the jobs may not be coming back. anybody from the romney camp may be looking for this caller. guest: lois romano was talking about the people that en.t jobs mostly were white ma republicans have traditionally gone towards republicans anyway. he has the ability to capture your vote. host: lauren ashburn is the editor in chief of "daily download." howard kurtz is an adviser to the "daily download." guest: brand c
, where do you think the presidential race is right now? >> i think mitt romney is looking very good. that's why the obama administration didn't want to run against mitt romney. he was clearly the most threatening of the republican candidates. i think he's the strongest candidate against obama. it's hard to take out an incumbent. republicans have only done it one time before in the last 100 years. when reagan beat carter. i guess isn't the last time it's happened when clinton took out bush, right? so it's curious, for example that there were 70 million viewers of that debate the other night, the highest it's been since 1992, the last time an incumbent was taken out. i think that's because people are uncomfortable with obama but if they're not political nuts, like we are, they haven't been paying attention, haven't been watching all the debates and they just want to see who the challenger is and whether they're comfortable with him. and i think after wednesday night, everyone's pretty comfortable with mitt romney. >> you were early, looking back, i was reading back on your twitter feed last
today is that mitt romney will actually do his debate walk through tomorrow over at the university of denver, so he'll be working on this all, you know, basically right up until the last moment. he had his top surrogates on the campaign trail and romney has an event later on today in littleton, colorado. paul ryan has been pretty busy, almost nonstop, out on the campaign trail the last couple of days. and so, you know, i think he'll let his surrogates do the talking for him until the debate gets started. one other thing we heard from kevin madden yesterday on the campaign plane heading into denver yesterday, brooke, you heard over the weekend, chris christie saying that this race is going to be turned upside down that romney will have such a strong performance that it is going to be sort of a game changer. i asked kevin madden about that yesterday, and he said he doesn't think that the campaign doesn't think that one event, one moment during these debates is going to decide and determine everything. they just don't see it that way. they like christie's enthusiasm, they say they're
the president. he's the devil they know. romney is the devil they don't. they haven't made up their mind about him one way or the other right now. >> colorado has nine electoral votes up for grabs, making it a crucial state for both candidates. there will be two more debates this month of the the second one takes place on october 16th. >>> tells me that somehow the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> conservatives are using this 2007 video of then presidential candidate barack obama against him before tonight's debate. they say the video shows a racially charged speech by obama, who told a group of black clergy that the bush administration was incompetent in its reaction to hurricane katrina. >>> tony, what should we expect tonight? for insight we turn to bret baier live in colorado this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. >> curious, what might these two gentlemen be doing now? do you think they have gotten any sleep today? >> reporter: well, i think the campaigns are hoping they got some sleep, because i think this moment is a big moment for bot
not know and make no predictions, but if romney gets smashed, i happen to think the political problem in the country today is we have a center left party and a far-right party. that is a short show party -- a structural problem. the republican party has gone nuts. that is my opinion. they have been simultaneously at war with math and physics at the same time. [laughter] on the deficit it was that the deficits do not matter. biology boggles some of them, that guy in missouri, too, for that matter. what happens the morning after the election from a loses? i wonder about the morning after the morning after though. we have gone way too far to the right and we need a different republican party. we need a center-right republican party which i think the country really needs. it needs to be a check on the rate -- the left and center left and that is the only way we will get a check on these issues. >> history suggests the second term of clinton and reagan were the productive terms where they had big achievements. it's hard to know whether the republican party, where they will portion the blam
